I just finished reading Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Jane Austen and Seth Graham-Smith (who once took a class is English Literature.)

Though on first sight one might pass the book off as part of the fluff collections of the horror genera; but, I challenge you to read the first twenty pages and then put the book away.  

I have never read any of Jane Austin’s, or had any desire to try one of this ilk; but the inclusion of zombies have made the book both palatable and intriguing – forcing me to carrying on to the end of what otherwise would have been a soupy love story.

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is a love story that is absolutely ridiculous to the point of absurdity – with enough violence and gore to excite the most harden horror fan.

  1. on your say so I will check it out

  2. This zombie pastiche has brought a whole new readership to Jane Austen! I think there's another one too -- "Sense and Sensibility and Sea Serpents" or something like that.


COMMENT: Ben Franklin said, "I imagine a man must have a good deal of vanity who believes, and a good deal of boldness who affirms, that all doctrines he holds are true, and all he rejects are false."
